End of year 2022
I sent you a postcard
I did my hand drawn postcard thing for the third year now or is it four? I can’t remember… but if you asked for one and don’t get it by February 2023 let me know and I’ll make/send you another one.
I saw some familiar names in the people who requested which was nice-
SHOCKING NOTE: I don’t have that many fans so I pretty much remember everyones name haha- also I don’t have a phone so yeah I tend to remember details and things many people do not.
I let people leave notes when they gave me their addresses to send postcards to- I thought this one was really funny- I guess they received a hand drawn card from me in years past-
I'll put it right next to my other one. I always love when people come over and ask what in the world is that weird picture of a girl? Did a five-year-old draw that and im like naw man. That's the coolest artist you got to look them up.
So 2022 is over- what did Imagination Rabbit do this year? What didn’t we do?
The biggest what DIDN’T we do- I had planned to make the second feature film in the M doll trilogy after M doll (2021) but it didn’t get made this year- I created all the actor models, collected all the models, outlined and storyboarded the whole film but never pulled the trigger as it wasn’t screaming to me to get made so I didn’t make it-
I’m glad I didn’t make it this year though as now I’m re-imagining it as a game instead of a film- its always exciting to try new things so new things I will try with the next big “film”
I updated our game that makes animations (Nightmare Puppeteer) a ton this year- added new features + new heads and the like- lagging on adding new scenes so will do that next year-
This vid shows on my fav new features- the ability to add animated models from Sketchfab to your scenes
I released two musical albums B WORDS + MISANTHROPIC and animated music videos made for each song with Nightmare Puppeteer-
Here’s one of my fav music videos I did for one of the songs with Nightmare Puppeteer
I released a really stupid joke game I made in a month called Derp Souls which I will continue to update when I get new dumb ideas for it.
Here’s some madman’s Derp Souls video- it gives you an idea of the madness inside of it
Compared to most years I didn’t get that much work done this year as I was traveling with my wife + family + friends a lot.
Here’s our 2022 trips in order
Italy 1 (Florence + San Gimignano, Lucca, Volterra, Sicily(Palermo, Cefalu, Agrigento, Taormina, Siracusa)
Rural Northern California 1
Italy 2 (Sardinia, Taormina)
Rural Northern California 2
Portugal (Lisbon, Sintra)
Maui, Hawaii 1
Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Maui, Hawaii 2
Now I’m no travel blogger or anything- we just had the ability to travel and I wasn’t bogged down by some giant project so why not?
Here’s some random photos from some of those trips
The last thing work-ish thing I do before the end of 2022 is get the M doll interactive on Steam- if you’ve been following my work this year you’ll know that I did submit it to steam in 2021 after the films release BUT it was removed because of the inclusion of QR codes that linked to the single M doll NFT
So I re-submitted without the NFT stuff and it looks like it will available the first week of January- I thought it was a pretty innovative thing and very few people have experienced it-
But anyway- I’m off to Iceland tomorrow for the holidays- be back next year-
Thanks to all fans, friends and family-
Epitome of living your best life. Warm wishes to you and your wife in 2023. =)
